    You certainly are a busy bee Ok.. I finished the 2 blocks for tomorrow..Finally, they're a little wonky but I've gotten to the point in my piecing that it's better to have them done than them being perfect.....
    what has happened to me????

    Anne - I think we figure no one will notice if it is not matching perfectly when it is put together as a whole! Who looks at each block separately - we just see the quilt as a whole! Most of us do not plan to "show" our quilts, so they will be fine!!! At least that is how I see it!

    No quilt police here, Honchey. As long as it's fine with you, its your quilt. That's my story and I am sticking to it. My blocks please me, therefore, the quilt will please me.

    Green beans are ready to can today; good thing I have done a few blocks ahead in FW so I can can today!

    Dr. agreed to lower the morning pill grams to rid myself of dizziness when I move too fast or bend over. Miserable feeling. Will pick up new pills tomorrow. Apparently, its a heart pill and there is nothing proven that I have a heart problem. Mmmmm, may have to look into that some more. Hate to take a pill I do not need to take, side affects could cause other problems too often.

    Have a great day everyone; this day shall not come again, so smile.

    NS, I had that feeling one time. Doc told me that sometimes the liquid in our middle ear gets stuck when it should move to the center. I researched and I have been taking Hyaluronic Acid for years. It is said to lubricate parts of you body. do a research on dizziness and find out....lots of info out there but make your own choice.

    Thanks, Rosie. You may have an idea there, my ears do ache. But I get cold inside the house which is not normal for me. The meds Dr has me on opens up the blood vessels in the heart more...I inherited my DF large veins so I do not believe I need that until more tests prove it. I will try the reduced pills and see what happens.

    Sixteen pints to process and changing up to quarts. I do not care to process all night long. LOL!

    Nina, sorry I missed your birthday, so I send you my best wishes. I usually like to buy Neva's noodles, they are made in Agency and sold at Hy Vee. Really like beef and noodles and chicken and noodles with mashed potatoes.
    OK, your canned meat sounds yummy, my DM, DD and I canned 1/2 a beef several years ago, sure miss having our own meat. Also missed the green beans. Good luck on your new job, I would probably spend all my time choosing what fabric to buy.

    Wishing I could send green beans your way, GrannyQ. We have toooooo many green beans left in the garden. Thanks for the good wishes. Off to see the DM Quilt show tomorrow, and their beautiful quilts and ideas...it will be quick trip, but still enjoyable. 220 vendors....temptations I am sure.

    Good to hear from you GrannyQ...I was just thinking about you as I wait for your green blocks to show up on the other threads.
    A half of a beef...oh how long did that take? We are almost out of beef...I called the locker (meat processor) to get an appointment for another beef...not until after New Years can we take one up. Called a second shop and it was Christmas...I thought I was getting ahead of the deer season rush...guess not and will have to start buying OTC meat..don't have HyVee in my neighborhood, Fareway has a very good meat counter...

    Gotta run farm errands for MrOK this morning...guess he's taking advantage of my last week home. Frost on the ground last night, a chill in the air...later

    Tiny house count...140 finished..10-12 needing roof and sky..90 bases to be sewn together..roofs and sky pieces for all cut..need to organize the peaks, but have so many small HST'S that I will pick them as I go..

    Now that I am getting this little UFO under control, I'm anxious to continue working on this with an endset in view.

    OK, it took us 2 full days for canning the beef, wish we had finished the other half of beef. The locker people didn't let the other half hang for awhile, they cut it up the same day, it had a terrible taste and we couldn't eat any of it. Had to throw it away. What a waste that was.

    Yes indeed a waste...folks don't realize that meat must hang for a time...a good 10-14 days so that flavor develops and gets nice and tender.

    Current beef prices here for a half of a beef is $1000.00 plus processing the beef at the locker. $600.00 for a quarter plus the processing at the locker. Generally, they hang it up for eight days, then cut it up and ground up the hamburger. I still do not have freezer room, so it will be three months more before we can consider buying the beef from a neighboring farmer...direct source.

    I rarely buy beef because it's costly here. Canned beef sounds wonderful! with mashed potatoes and gravy! Yum! In another month, I hope to be canning salmon. Last year we had more than 200 pounds. We went fishing several times, and had luck, and usually caught the limit. The largest my husband caught was 39" and 26 pounds. I froze a lot of it and gave some away. We had more caviar than we could eat. I haven't ever canned fish before. I think I need to get my pressure gauge checked on my canner before I can meat. I've had it a zillion years and never had it checked. The glass cracked and fell off and the needle is exposed. I'm careful washing it, but usually I do water bath items and don't use the gauge anyway.

    Yumm Ya'll are making me hungry! I hope next year that we have some green beans & black eyed peas to freeze.

    Yesterday DH & I went & bought a trailer so that moving will be a bit faster.

    Today DH packed a bunch more stuff outta the garage onto the back of it. With all that we have taken down to Brady so far & what he packed today he was able to get the trailer into the garage. We are making progress! He will pack the truck tomorrow.

    After we paid bills & I did my stuff this mornin', I went to the PO & then shopping for my DSis's b-day. I think I went all over town. LOL DH told me to find some jewelry. I know that she wears Sterling so that was what I went looking for. Since they closed the northside Walmart the southside one is a madhouse & I really didn't want to go there. I know from experience that most of the jewelry stores here in Midland look down at sterling silver so I decided to try some pawn shops. Some of them looked down on sterling too!!! Sigh, I finally found a lovely ring & it was in the sale display! It had some lovely black CZ's along w/the regular white ones. I also went looking for a vase for some flowers & a cherry candle. I almost always buy her a cherry candle for her B-day. Well I didn't find a cherry candle but did find a Tuscany Candle. It has a li'le warming light in the bottom & ya put scented wax in the top to melt. Sigh, they didn't have scented cherry wax either. I got her the rain scented wax instead. Then I found a vase that had an apple painted on one side & a lemon on the other side. It goes so well w/the fruit decor she has in her kitchen. I bought some miniature red & yellow roses to go in it. Her love language is gifts so she loves that I get her a bunch of stuff for her B-day. I then took 'em over to her house. She said that she thought I had forgotten her. It was after 6:00pm. She was so excited to get 'em. I usually try to sneak in & set up a kind of display for her birthday but I kinda figured that she was gonna be home. So I called her when I got there & actually gave 'em to her in person.

    Wonderful BD surprise for your Sis. Bev.....

    MrOK would love eating at your house givio...he loves salmon..now don't cringe..it's one of the few foods I have a hard time eating..and yes have tried good fresh salmon, too..he loved it when DSon took him to the market in Seattle and they brought home salmon for the evening meal.

    I have a canner like yours too and use it only as a hot water bath canner...the newer pressure canner doesn't have a gauge, but a calibrated weight..a new canner is a sizable investment, too.

    MMMMmmmm I just looooove Salmon! If DH asks me what him to cook I will usually say Salmon. Now he hates to cook Salmon so I probably get it about once or twice a year but I usually ask. I don't get my feelings hurt when he says no either. I know how he feels. We then have a real conversation about what we want to eat. I am just glad that he does all the cooking.

    I don't know that I have ever had salmon. My husband won't eat it cooked but always orders it RAW when we go for sushi; he and the kids really like it that way.

    I eat Salmon but it's not my favorite. I like the fish that hubby and son catch fresh out of the sea. On another note. when YOu guys say you can half a beef, are you talking about half a cow? good gravy, I could not tackle anything like that lol....I have no idea...the best thing I can can is jam and that's it.

    I cook some pears yesterday and made pear sauce. I also make my apple sauce but dont' can them. I make about a quart and put in frig and eat on a daily basis with my plain yogurt, it takes the place of icecream that I have given up.

    Back from the AQS show in Des Moines, Iowa. Just quilter 65 and I on this quick trip to see her quilt on display at the show...now if I can figure out how to download if from the smart phone to the computer...I did visit the Bloc Loc vendor and they were very helpful in what ones I really needed to stock up on. Two sizes of squares and two sizes of flying geese. Picked up three panels I can use in current list of UFOs, found some pale pink, and was ready to come home. Not as friendly or knowledgeable volunteers working today but they were friendly sort of...let me borrow a chair seat at a table while quilter 65 look around a bit and eves drop on comments on her quilt...Made it back in time for her to attend her DGS ball game. That timing was just fine with me, as I was worn out anyhow.

    Bev, "her love language is gifts" is a quaint way to say it. :-) My mother was like that, and my sister is like that too. I can so identify with that concept.
    Rosy, I canned 'pear sauce' too, was it last week? and got bored waiting for it to boil down and "round on the spoon," gave up waiting, and my pear sauce is pear syrup this year, to use on pancakes, I guess. :-p
    QNS, the AQS show! That's on my to-do list. I've never been to a quilt show yet.
